Hillary Dominates Your Picks for a 2016 Ticket

When The Advocate asked LGBT voters to fill out an online survey about the election, we couldn't help also throwing in a question about who you have in mind for 2016. The result isn't scientific. But one name stood out.



5) Michelle Obama
The first lady could have had a political career of her own as an Ivy-league educated attorney with a passion for health, education, and veterans and their families. She admirably bootstrapped her way from a lower-middle-class African-American family. But Michelle Obama has been a dynamic, beloved first lady, garnering an average higher popularity rating than her husband. Her speeches before LGBT crowds are always welcomed with big applause. If Hillary Clinton is a model for what's possible, then Michelle could be a tough commander in chief. Remember, she puts on quite a gun show.
